Description
If I could describe it in a few words, I’d say “poetic”, “lonely”, and “deliberate”. There’s a touch of the sadness that comes at the end of summer, the transition into cold and quiet. It feels heavy with undertones. Every word seems deliberate and filled with meaning.

probably it will work well for japanese people who understand the allegory behind the real words. for english speaker, it think the manga seem a bit forced. the art definitely show that this manga is not supposed to be consumed the same way as other manga.

Poetic, sombre and full of meaning

I'm surprised at the lack of the comments. This is really poetic, sad, yet full of cryptic meanings(both dark and light undertones).
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Heh... I'm unsure if any realized it but in the past, certain instruments were also made from the bones of animals. Now... was this related to this story in any way? Who knows, eh?
But regardless of that, this story though brief, had a somber yet slightly macabre outlook on life's fleeting moments.
